During the dry season (May to September) rain is rare, it's less hot and there are fewer mosquitos. This time of the year is the peak season and prices are at the top level.
Birding is outstanding in the Okavango. We explored the waterways by boat and in a mokoro (wooden canoe) several times. Our evening boat ride for bird watching was an unforgettable experience with a jaw-dropping sunset. Our guide Baams run an extra mile for us. We enjoyed the stories he shared with us about life in Botswana.
The mokoro tour led to Chief's Island. The island is located in the delta, and depending on the water level you can walk there with your guide. The hippos use the waterways as well. Once we had a hippo under the mokoro. Luckily, on our last tour, this was really scary. Okavango, Chobe, and Moremi are the most famous parks of Botswana.
